Safety and security
All our hostels are safe and secure with a Night Duty Supervisor on duty at each hostel every night of the year. Entry to each hostel is by a fob system, which is also monitored by CCTV. Each resident has their own key to their own bedroom and in each bedroom, there are personal safes, key codes are set by the residents themselves and the master key is kept secure in the hostel manager’s office.
All our hostels provide 4 meals a day – breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper. All meals are served in a communal dining room and the menu is varied, healthy and is seasonally adjusted.
